23 Jan 2009 - London Pain Forum at The Ritz
The inaugral meeting of the London Pain Forum at The Ritz Hotel, Piccadilly on 23 January 2009 was a phenomenal success. Leading figures in pain medicine from London and across the UK gathered together to lay the foundations of a new organisation committed to multi-centre research, overseas training and above all alleviating human suffering.
Highlights of the evening included a talk from orthopaedic surgeon Mr Peter Earnshaw who discussed the 700 year history of the Barbers & Surgeons Guild upon which our new Forum is being modelled.
This was followed by a guest of honour lecture from the highly regarded father of radiofrequency Professor Menno Sluijter from Switzerland.
Drinks receptions in the Ritz's Marie Antoinette Suite were followed by lectures, presentations and a banquet in the elegant 18th century surroundings of The Music Room, located in the William Kent House wing of the historic hotel.
